# [W] [W] [W]
# HUGE MOTHAFUCKING UPSET FOR THE METS!
lolololol you just got swept by the ‘22 Cubs
We swept the Mets!!!!
**[ W ]**
WE FUCKING SWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP
Mets are in 1st place, only 1 game up-- and nobody is in the stands.
Man, Seiya's having some close calls tonight. Yikes.
Seiya instantly laughing
Nice catch! Good to see Seiya smiling, phew
I think they both would have made that catch.
Hermosillo haters - how about that catch?
It wasn’t his fielding I hated, just his lack of any bat at all
I wouldn’t consider myself a hater, but I’ve done my fair share of hating. So hats off to Hermosillo👏
Uh, listen to your centerfielder’s call, Seiya
It’s weird that the cubs don’t have a closer. I mean at this point you’d think they would have a clue.
Hughes finished the last two games and pitched more than an inning both times.
Technically if he were the closer he still wouldn’t be available.
Maybe put a guy in that can go for more than 2 innings.
geeez talk to each other.....
One GIDP with cheese, please.
And a Coke.
I'll take TWO GIDP with cheese, and a Sprite, to FUCKING GO!
#LET’S FUCKING GOOOOO
Thank god for that first inning
Easy 1, 2, 3 and we sweep these damn New Yorkers
Oh how I would love to sweep the Mets!
Three more outs. Maybe our pitcher can do something.
Ian happ is up
I think he said Iie which is Japanese for No
It looks like you spelled "lie" like "That's a lie." Not iie pronounced E-A.
You are not allowed to hit our Seiya
SUZUKI?! IS HE ALRIGHT?!
It seems, in your anger, you killed him...
I'm not angery, I'm worried!
Fuckin god dammit
Edit: appears nothing is broken but it’s probably going to leave a nasty bruise
Lindors hair basket has noting on Stroman.
WTF does this have to do with actual baseball?
What do jerseys have to do w actual baseball?
You are inferring race even if you don't mean it. If you didn't mean it, then you could be forgiven. If not, then the jersey comment that is irrelevant should be noted.
Uhh Stroman rocks it better!
Streak: Mets hitting a HR down 4 with 4 outs or less in the game... 3 in a row.
Just knew that shit was happening
Anyway Ian happ has a 4.0 War
Kyle schwarber 1.0
Didn't we sweep the Phillies?
Probably. But still think we have 3 more games against them
I’m just glad nobody was on base
Ikr? That double play was clutch
Alonso looks in pain when he runs
Fuck me, NOT THE MEATBALL
Pete the cunt Alonso got his solo HR
At least there were no one on xD
Cubs’ pitching has been able to induce just the grounder they’ve needed time and again in this series.
Don't give Alonso the fucking meatball Rucker!
DOUBLE FUCKING PLAY
Mets fans in SHAMBLES
Bullshit hit after bullshit hit for the Mets
Rucker please don’t fuck this up
Ok seriously. Three days in a row I get home late and three days in a row we kick ass. I guess we win if I miss most of the game.
More like Rowan Thick, amirite?!?
Ohew. Thank God. NW LETS GET SOME INSURANCE
why is everyone talking about morel
Because one of his cat whiskers is smudged
Probably because he’s the best prospect the cubs have had in a while
d didn’t have the game on saw the mets fans all saying fuck morel
Is he even that good?
In spurts yeah. That eventuality leads to being good most of the time. Put him at second and forget about it.
Overall hos numbers look pretty meh
He just made a nice play. Duh
don’t have the game on
He made a nice defensive stop and throw to first.
Keep morel in the infield JED
Wick out here smellin something funky
It’s unreal how many fastballs wisdom misses
It’s twitch boy
Now let's get our two runs back Cubs. We desperately need this damn sweep
Why take out Smyly here?
I dunno why. That run wasn't even Smyly's fault. I guess Ross thinks he is tired or sumthin'
In the end RHP beat RH batters in the 6th inning, so carry on everyone.
I was thinking the same thing.
Even tho it is bottom 6th, my heart is starting to beat hard...
Wisdom has been atrocious at the hot corner this season and his bat hasn't been anywhere near good enough to make up for it. Ideally he's a platoon hitter at 1B next season. Can't have him as your everyday 3B, just can't
Hope we get to see Estrada tonight.
Hope we see Jared young tonight
I would be okay with that too!
So sick of PW
Poor choice to field it like that
C'mon, P-Wis. Have to make that play.
Phew, that was almost bad. Nice catch
Wisdom gave them a free run instead
Why did marquee just show 4 slow motion replays of a fly out?
Wisdom missed a meatball
If Wisdom's not putting that pitch in the seats, he's not a major leaguer.
How long has Wisdom been gone? I feel like I haven’t seen him in a while
He had an IL stint for the finger he hurt on that slide into home.
I legit forgot all about his existence…I have got to stop smoking that delta 10 shit.
Going back to the chat with Sampson... they should have asked about the beef with Alonzo much earlier in the interview.
He was very glad for the on field distraction to avoid that question I think lol
Cubs better keep Smyly
Jeez Franmil was way in front of that and still almost got it to the warning track
Nimmo is so good in cf
Yea jd let's have a round robin!
Still on pace for 18-3 victory.
I HOPE they get some more runs, 6-1 ain't gonna cut it, since I've seen how the Brewers annihilated the Cubs 14-7 last year against one of our best pitchers called Arrieta
That was sad. At his peak, Arrieta was spectacular but he didn’t stay at that elite level for very long. The decline from his 2015-2016 form was hard to watch.
I know right? I felt bad for him because he had a major surgery on somethin?
I still miss Len. Boog has never grown on me.
The same for me but for JD.
Len is a HOF broadcaster. No conparison
Boog's neither good nor terrible, but he's no Len.
It will be a long time till someone gives the energy that Len & Bob had. I was t alive when Harry was alive announcing. I can only imagine Len & Bob but greater.
Harry was totally entertaining - but in my lifetime, my favorite Cubs TV broadcaster was Jack (“Hey! Hey!”) Brickhouse. He was such a fan, and he made great moments even more exciting. In the era of Pat Hughes, I almost always have the radio on because Pat is one of the best PBP guys ever.
I'm with you buddy
JD wants a conference tournament to get into the playoffs. I guess he's looking forward to the off-season
Both announcers said they weren't on board in reality. Just a hypothetical.
Fuck this umpire
Seems like the umpires need to collectively relearn interference. I absolutely do not want them to be unilaterally in control of governing any pitch clock
The umps have been in charge of a, by rule, 12 second clock to deliver pitches with no runners on base for the last hundred years plus.
The pitch clock in the minors with a scoreboard countdown has apparently been uniformly enforced, with a violation only once a series or so.
I haven’t watched much AAA baseball, but I don’t trust major league umps to be competent frankly
I thought as long as the batter is in their box, it can't be interference?
Any umpire's decision that's not challenge-able can be anything.
Apparently, according to the other sub, the Mets announcers were also saying that call was bs
Mets have great announcers
Bote is like 5’8 175 lbs. dude don’t get in the way of shit.
LOL where is Bote supposed to go
Zack in the booth said they were just looking for stuff to call now. Unreal.
yeah that absolutely was not interference
Don’t care. The nepotism in mlb umpiring needs to stop.
Are they claiming that the batter was in the way of the throw to *third* after the catcher's double pump?
edit: Yeah, that was a horrendous call. The catcher doesn't get to truck a batter turning away in his batter's box and get a free out.
maybe it would help if our broadcast actually showed replays of shit like that
Nope, can’t interrupt Boog’a conversation with the least interesting man in baseball
What's your favorite karaoke song? This is important.
That’s the second time that has happened in like a week
i didn't see it but i'm a massive homer so i know there was no interference
Interference? Wth? How was that interference?
Hootie and the Blowfish? Wooooowww! Now to commercial.
Bote is so god damn dumb lmao
Mets running after that fly ball was like my gf running to empty the dishwasher. Heyyooo
Hitting into the great triangle of death looks like a liner in the box score.
Not every player is interesting
Good hustle, PJ
Mets really suck
**Do I smell a sweep?**
I do not like Jeff McNeil, but I wil defend to the death his right to choke up 7” on his bat
The stretch by PJ was impressive as well
I know who to come back to if we don’t
Even if you’re not superstitious, ya don’t wanna be the one blamed.
I meant sweep not a nohitter. My bad
I’m not superstitious but I am a little stitious.
Pete "Foul Ball" Alonso
WHAT A PLAY! Smyly's reaction made that more difficult but an amazing play to get that out.
If Smyly doesn't touch it the result is a completely routine groundout to short.
Wisdom and Bote in the dugout like: "Dayum, these Mets pitchers are nasty, right, fellas? Guys?!?!"
Good grief Mets, you should be absolutely embarrassed.
Imagine being a playoff team and getting worked by Assad, Sampson, Gomes, Higgins, Hermosillo, and Velazquez
JD with a Flinstones reference.
Just because the pitch looks good doesnt mean its a strike.
The cubs are somehow above .500 against the nl east
Y’all should be in the playoffs over us at this point..
I’m not sayin’, [I’m just sayin’.](https://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/31740704/milwaukee-brewers-rally-7-run-deficit-first-inning-beat-chicago-cubs-15-7-sweep-series)
At this point, we’re just celebrating what we can get.
Aight Braves run it back this season cause I hate the Dodgers, don't fuck with Mets, and hate Astros.
Would have been cool if Boog wasn’t talking about the Mets while Smyly was absolutely destroying Lindor with offspeed
Ok he’s just having fun with it now. Great pitches
🎶*Meet the Mets*🎶
